ESPN will host Friday’s matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics with tip off set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. If you aren’t around a TV to check out this primetime NBA matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription.

If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

What would normally be a top matchup in the Eastern Conference has lost a little bit of luster. Luckily, we still have some revenge narrative. The Celtics have a lengthy injury report and Jaylen Brown and Robert Williams are both still on there. Both players are questionable to play vs. the Nets on Friday. Jayson Tatum is also dealing with an ankle injury and Kemba Walker has been in and out of the lineup with an illness. Despite the long injury report, the Celtics have won seven of their past eight games.

The Brooklyn Nets could get a nice boost if Kevin Durant is able to return to the lineup. KD left a few games ago due to a thigh contusion and is questionable to play Friday vs. the Celtics. Durant had just returned from a hamstring injury, so the Nets could go easy with his minutes if he’s able to return. James Harden remains out, while Kyrie Irving has a revenge spot against his former team.
